COVID-19 Guidance

The Town of Amherst is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, and anticipating its impact on our community. Through working collaboratively and creatively together, the Reopening Committee, and in collaboration with Department Heads, have developed COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that will help to ensure employee safety. 

  • Education: Employees will review the SOPs and receive a copy of them when they return to work.
  • Mental and Physical WellnessEmployees are encouraged to take advantage of Town-sponsored EAP resources and maintain a healthy work-life balance. Regular communication is sent out via email to raise awareness of wellness activities. If employees are struggling, they are encouraged to speak with their supervisor or Human Resources. 
  • CommunicationEmployees are encouraged to engage in open communication. This is the best way to get concerns addressed quickly. The Town will also continue to provide regular communications to ensure every employee knows what is going on in the Town. Employees are encouraged to come forward with new ideas for enhancing workplace safety. Please send your comments and suggestions to humanresources@amherstma.gov
